This function deletes a specified connection request, potentially dropping the physical connection.
HRESULT WINAPI ConnMgrReleaseConnection( HANDLE hConnection, LONG lCache); );
- [in] Handle to the connection, returned from ConnMgrEstablishConnection.
- The number of seconds to cache the connection before disconnection occurs. This parameter accepts values described in the following table.
Value Description A value greater than 1 The number of seconds to cache the connection before disconnection occurs. 1 The default cache time value, as specified by the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\ConnMgr\Planner\Settings registry key. The CacheTime registry setting defines the default for non-exclusive connections and the VPNCacheTime registry setting defines the default for exclusive connections. 0 Disconnection occurs immediately (that is, the connection request is not cached).
Note Some Windows Mobile 2002-based Smartphones ignore the specified value of this parameter and instead use the default value (60 seconds).
Returns S_OK if successful, or an error code if the function call failed.
The Connection Manager does not cache the following types of connections:
- Suspended connections
- Disconnected connections
- Connections without a DestId (that is, when the connection was provisioned using provisioning XML, a DestId was not specified)
- Fixed path connections (that is, a connection where the destination GUID is set to be an existing network connection managed using the Connection Manager)
